ElringKlinger cylinder-head gaskets. Over 100 years of know-how.
The company’s story began in 1879, when it started trading in gaskets and other technical products. Today, ElringKlinger is the leading supplier of cylinder-head gaskets.
Most of the world’s major automobile manufacturers put their trust in our exceptional quality and reliability. Cylinder-head gaskets play a key role in the ongoing refinement of engine technology, particularly for high-performance diesel engines and gasoline engines with direct fuel injection. Every year we produce around 30,000,000 cylinder-head gaskets worldwide. Our MetaloflexTM brand has made us the world’s largest manufacturer of metal layer cylinder-head gaskets. ElringKlinger offers the perfect sealing solution for every engine concept and the support of a highly efficient engineering service that accelerates the development process from original idea to production readiness.
Efficient. Reliable. Cost-effective. Custom-made.
Cylinder-head gaskets from ElringKlinger reliably prevent leakage of fuel gas, coolant and oil. Acting as a load transmission element between crankcase and cylinder head, they also have a considerable influence on the distribution of forces within the entire bracing system and the resulting elastic component deformations.
There is no standard solution for modern engines. The increasing demands call for an exact match between cylinder-head gasket and engine.
Cylinder-head gaskets produced by ElringKlinger are sophisticated components that are always customized to requirements. The technical superiority of our products is especially apparent in diesel engines and high-performance gasoline engines with direct fuel injection and is reflected in the following key features:
- Metal technology
- Flexible seal with beads for macro sealing
- Elastomer coating for micro sealing
- High thermal stability
- Compensation of high dynamic sealing gap movement
- Variable installed thicknesses, dead space minimization
